Hot on the heels of the announcement of Spinningfields' summer pop-up Long Bar, comes more exciting pop up news in the flowery form of Bloom Bar. Due to open next week, Bloom Bar will be located in the heart of Spinningfields, on the edge of The Lawns in Hardman Square.
Bloom Bar is the latest pop up bar to hit Spinningfields
Creating a natural oasis in the middle of the city, Bloom aims to celebrate "greenery, nature, escapism, seasonality and living beauty" and will be the only bar of its kind in Manchester.
With herbs grown on-site, its own living wall and cocktail gardeners, this joint venture between Allied London and Fluid Bars is set to provide an organic retreat amidst its neighbouring Spinningfields bars.
Bloom will serve themed cocktails and summer drinks to share. Bloom’s cocktail gardeners will be creating drinks infused and garnished with their own ingredients grown on-site (herbs, berries etc.) and the bar will also stock a wide range of ales from local breweries. Sandwiches and soups will be served daily using fresh Manchester produce and ingredients from the venue.
Bloom will also host a series of events throughout the summer, including barbecues, outdoor games, croquet on the lawn, cocktail and beer tutorials.
Designed by James Darwent Architecture Ltd, Bloom has been designed to fit seamlessly alongside The Lawns. Cubic in shape and clad in galvanised green living walls, the structure has a timber frame and provides an undercover area that opens up to face The Lawns and the big screen.
The bar will be open 12.00-23.00 Sunday to Thursday, and 12.00-00:00 Friday and Saturday. Stay tuned for an official launch date.
